This weekend, I was ask to pick up some ice cream by Nestle at my local Wal-Mart. Here in Oklahoma, the heat is soring and I thought ice cream would be the perfect answer. We set out to do a sundae bar; however, the favorites quickly turned into the Push Up and the Drumsticks. These were the easiest for the kids to handle as they were coming in and out from the pool.
We purchased Nestle Drumsticks that now include strawberry. I have to say my heart skipped a few beats when I saw that chocolate goodness wrapped around strawberry ice cream. My favorite flavor! I also purchased the push up of course, I remember loving those as a kid and still could eat them daily! I don’t, but I could. They are so refreshing in the summer heat. My splurge was on the Haagen-Dazs. Although, I love Haagen-Dazs it’s typically not in my normal shopping trip. It’s normally out of my frugal shopping budget. When I saw a pint of Caramel Cone though, how could I resist? I also love that the individual servings come complete with a little ice cream spoon under the lid, perfect for on the go!
We are typical ice cream eaters, we eat it on occasion. I think my husband could eat it daily, but he tries his hardest not to. The hot months though, make it more irresistible.
Of course the rest of us including grandma were more than happy to take a break from the heat and enjoy a treat.
My son tried out the Push Up first and of course, he let grandpa try a few licks too.
We invited our good friends over as well and they quickly jumped out of the pool to cool off with a Nestle treat.
After another quick round of swimming, it was time to bust out the chocolate, and who better than to show us just how good it is? The kids.
My son decided to show us his mood swings, he was so thrilled about this chocolate treat. He has Popsicles from time to time but it’s not every day he has a Haagen-Dazs treat.
Then, he realized, he was a mess. As the last part of his chocolate treat went sliding down his belly.
And with that…we hit the showers, or in our case the water hose.
We enjoyed our Ice Cream Social and look forward to having another one very soon.
